Ajay Choudhary has been successful in handling asylum cases for clients from Pakistan. An article written by Ajay Choudhary regarding an asylum case he handled for Shia Muslims from Pakistan was published by LexisNexis.

In the case discussed in that article, the Board of Immigration Appeals ruled that “Shia Muslims are being targeted in violent attacks” in Pakistan. The decision by the Board of Immigration Appeals in that case can be used to help other Shia Muslims from Pakistan apply for asylum. Ajay Choudhary has used that decision to help some of his other clients. For example, in a case involving other Shia Muslims from Pakistan, Ajay Choudhary represented his clients at an asylum interview at the Houston Asylum Office. At the asylum interview, Ajay Choudhary gave the asylum officer a copy of the Board of Immigration Appeals’ decision and explained the significance of the decision. The asylum officer subsequently granted asylum to Ajay Choudhary’s clients.

In addition to Shia Muslims, other persons from Pakistan can apply for asylum. For example, Christians, Ahmadis, and many other persons have been persecuted in Pakistan.

In general, a person can be granted asylum if he has suffered past persecution or has a well-founded fear of being persecuted because of his religion, race, political opinion, nationality, or membership in a particular social group. The Supreme Court has indicated that if there is a 10% chance that a person will be persecuted, then that person can establish that he has a well-founded fear of being persecuted.

A person who is granted asylum can eventually obtain permanent residence (a “green card”). Also, certain family members can be included in an asylum application.

Another advantage of applying for asylum is the opportunity to obtain a work permit while the asylum application is pending. Ajay Choudhary’s clients have received work permits after their asylum applications have been pending with USCIS for 150 days.
